Stock GPS sensor location

Post by ron.feenstra »



I have a question about the mounting location for the stock gps reciever/sensor on my 2007 GW. I have dismantled most of my body work to install some additional led strip lighting and a K2 camera system and found my GPS receiver just laying in behind the lower windshield. It definitively has a bit of an angled/offset mounting bracket but I can’t figure out where it should actually be mounted. Any ideas??
TIA

Clips to the underside of the visor. I cant remember exactly what it looks like but it should stand out.

It took some looking, but I found the 'hidden location'. I had to take the underside of the visor off (screws and difficult to reach snap clips deep inside), but it is all installed now.

Thanks for the help!
